Abstract
  • This study examines the quantity and placement of Ku Klux Klan materials among archival collections in five academic libraries in the United States. I discuss the importance of collecting materials from hate groups in the United States, with the Ku Klux Klan as an example, and explore challenges in outreach and description. A comparison and analysis of Ku Klux Klan holdings in repositories reveals the current status of those materials and provides insight into how repositories and archivists confront controversial research topics.
